Noah Roark now at High Point Cemetery
Hello Rebecca,

I followed your helpful instructions and moved Noah Roark over also.

That was EASY!!!

Thank you for you help. !!!!!

By the way I have two pictures to post onto Louisa's page. They are easier to read. Take a look and see what you think.

Gott Cemetery, Noah Roark and Louisa Roark
Hello Rebecca,

How are you?

It has been a while since we shared emails.

Hope you are in good health and still searching on Find A Grave.

Yesterday I was photographing the High Point Cemetery in Moniteau County, MO. While photographing I found the actual gravestone for Noah Roark and Louisa Roark.

I vaguely remember us emailing each other back a couple of years ago when my wife and I visited the Gott Cemetery and could not find the gravestones for Noah and Louisa. We could not figure it out with the white rail fence in the background just like at the Gott Cemetery. Well, the white rail fence is also in the background at the High Point Cemetery.

Now that the mystery is solved do you know how to transfer Noah and Louisa to the High Point Cemetery? I have never transferred a whole page. And to further complicate matters there are many, many links on each of their pages. Not sure how to transfer to another cemetery and preserve the many links.

If you know how to make the transfer to another cemetery I could return transfer Noah Roark back to you as the original creator of the page if that would easier/ok with you.

It would be nicer if we could transfer all your great work in total for each person rather than starting new pages without all the links.

Had another thought. If you want to do so, you could transfer Louisa Roark to me and then I could email Find A Grave and ask THEM to change both to the High Point Cemetery at the same time. Maybe that would be the way to preserve all the many links on each page.

Here is another web source for you to look at also. Then click on the High Point Cemetery:

Let me know your thoughts when you get a chance.

Asa Shelton
Rebecca, I have another question. Was that photo of Asa Shelton and Sarah Jane (Keeth)#12448283 Shelton's tombstone possibly taken in the Ralph Duncan Farm Cemetery, Miller Co., Mo. I am pretty sure that Asa was buried in the above cemetery.

I am trying to get it straightened out on where Asa was buried. Sarah was buried for sure in the William's Coal Creek Cemetery in Miami, Ottawa Co., Ok.

Thank you for updating his memorial and linking him to his parents, and for looking up his death date on his death certificate. Sorry I missed that.
